Directions Preparation:5min › Ready in:5min
Put the oil, vinegar or lemon juice, sugar and salt and freshly ground black pepper in a screw-top jar and shake well to combine. (Alternatively, put all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together.)
Put the salt, pepper, mustard and sugar in a small bowl, add the vinegar and stir until the salt and sugar have dissolved. Gradually whisk in the olive oil, according to taste: for a smooth, mild dressing, add 4–5 tablespoons; for a sharper dressing, add just 2 tablespoons.
